Q.Companion Plant

Zone 46140 | carnyman2 added on April 25, 2020 | Answered

I have wild violets that want to take over my tomato bed. Would it be bad to let them remain and plant tomatoes in with them? Wouldn’t they help keep the ground from drying out and keep other invasive weeds out? Do they rob the ground of nutrients that the tomato plant needs? I’m in central Indiana if that makes a difference.
